printouts are purple

  Sheila-Jo 23:59 06 Oct 05


i've got a canon i865 which i have been very happy with. recently when i print something off the colour more often than not comes out in a purple tint. my ink tanks are full and i've given the printer a 'deep clean' under the maintenance options but still the same effect.

can anyone help please?

thanks in advance,

have these compatibles worked ok previously?

yes I've been using them for a few months and they've been fine.

Try re-aligning the cartriges, Sheila-Jo. I think that option is also in the Maintenance options.
